BUFFALO, NY – Mayor Byron W. Brown, joined by Braymiller Market Owner Stuart Green and Ciminelli
Real Estate Corp. President and CEO Paul F. Ciminelli, announced that Braymiller Market, an historic
Hamburg market known for fresh produce, specialty foods, and seasonal plants, plans to open a new store
as part of the 201 Ellicott Project. The fresh-food market is a key component of Mayor Brown’s affordable
housing project planned for Ellicott Street, between the NFTA bus station and the downtown library.
Mayor Brown stated, “Today, we’re ready to welcome a wonderful fresh-food market with over 70 years of
experience to downtown Buffalo, giving residents a new choice to buy quality food in an urban environment.
Every community that is economically and financially sustainable has choices — choices in housing, choices
in grocery stores, choices of good jobs. The addition of Braymiller Market, bringing fresh produce and
specialty foods to our urban shoppers, is one more positive piece in our continued efforts to build an even
more equitable, sustainable and financial platform for Buffalo.”
Mayor Brown announced that Braymiller Market will create an estimated 65 job opportunities for city
residents, and give residents and visitors a new choice to buy fresh produce and specialty food in an urban
environment. Stuart Green recently signed a letter of intent with Ciminelli Development to build, and
ultimately own and operate, the fresh-food market in Buffalo.
“Our formula for success, our ‘secret sauce,’ is retail and wholesale offerings of the freshest foods,” said
Green. “We offer our customers core grocery items to accompany our vast variety of produce that we source
seasonally from local farms. In addition, we prepare our own soups, salads, meals and sandwiches here in
our market with those perishable products.”
“This is a long-awaited addition to the downtown core, and an exciting one at that. Not only is Braymiller
Market a solid, long-standing Western New York business, it also brings a relationship-centric philosophy
that makes it a perfect fit for the City of Good Neighbors,” said Paul F. Ciminelli, president and CEO of
Ciminelli Real Estate. “Stuart Green and his team are emphatic about understanding customers’ needs,
to ensure that the market continually surpasses expectations through quality products and service.
